Katheryn Kelly: The Moll Behind "Machine Gun" Kelly
A quick and enlightening read, this book will appeal to readers who enjoy learning about the dark underbelly of mobster day's long passed. Author Barbara Casey, puts forth a fast paced and easy read chronicling the rise and fall of Kathryn Kelly and her husband "Machine Gun" Kelly. The book promises to be about the Moll behind the monster, but in reality it covers all characters pretty equally and skims over her childhood in one small chapter. Even though it wasn't focused on just her, it was interesting to learn how she and her husband met and tried to pull off a major kidnapping case and in the process, bit off far more than they could chew. Even though readers won't learn about Kathryn's favorite foods, preferred designers, or previous husbands they will get a good understanding of how she helped her husband orchestrate some pretty dastardly crimes.
